Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review

Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Last year I discovered two of my favorite gel cleansers and one of them was this Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser. The other is the Nooni Gel Cleaner. These two were game changers in my cleansing routine and I was so happy to find cleansers with really nice formulas that's gentle on my skin, have low pH and are very affordable as well.

The Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser was the first of the two gel cleansers that I tried and fell in love with. This is my second tube and I have a third in my stash since I'm almost done with this one. You can say this one's a keeper. Let's get to know it!

Low pH Cleanser
150ml | ~$10

Product Description: The Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is a gentle cleanser great for morning and night. It has a low pH of 5.0 - 6.0, which is optimal for the skin. This cleanser is formulated with a variety of natural ingredients, such as evening primerose and tea tree oil, to restore the skin to its optimal balance, control excess sebum, and reduce irritations all at the same time. It also contains natural BHA to help refine skin texture as well. This low pH cleanser will effectively cleanse the skin by removing build-up of sebum, dead skin cells, and other impurities without stripping the skin. 

To Use: In the morning, use it as a gentle cleanser on damp skin to remove any irritants built up overnight. In the evening, use the cleanser as a second cleanser and gently massage it onto the skin to remove sebum and impurities before rinsing off.

Squeeze tube packaging

Packaging: Cosrx's gel cleanser comes in a squeeze tube as seen above. There's plenty of product information in both English and Korean on the package.

Scent: Herbal, tea tree scent. It's fairly strong and it won't be pleasant for everyone. I wasn't the biggest fan of it when I first started using it. However, I've kind of gotten used to it over time.

Color: Colorless, as seen in image below.

Texture: The cleanser starts off as a fluid gel. Once water is added, it can foam up into a nice lather.

Michelle's Thoughts: Finding a good cleanser can be as hard as finding that perfect facial cream or serum. Especially when you have sensitive skin like me. I've come across a lot of cleansers that strips the skin, doesn't cleanse well, or just weren't gentle enough on my skin. Those aren't the only issues either but I'm glad that tough journey of finding the perfect cleanser is over. I still opt to try new cleansers from time to time, but at least now I know if the new ones don't work I have two that I love that I can fall back on.

The Cosrx cleanser has been a stable product in my cleansing routine ever since I discovered it last year. It wasn't exactly love at first sight, but it came pretty close. The main issue I had with it when I first started using it was its scent. That herbal tea tree scent is not going to be pleasant for everyone. It certainly wasn't for me at first, that's for sure. I did, overtime, start to get used the scent so that it's not a big issue anymore. However, if I feel that I'm extra sensitive to scents on a particular day I make sure to use the Nooni cleanser instead. Aside from the scent, everything else is great! The gel cleanser cleanses well as a second cleanser or as a gentle morning cleanser. It has a gentle formula that's perfect for my sensitive, combo to oily, and acne prone skin (yeah, I wasn't gifted in the skin department). The cleanser also helps to reduce irritations, improve skin texture, and control excess sebum as well. Which makes it perfect for my skin type. This cleanser is really easy to use and I find it lathers nicely. Although from experience, it lathers a lot better while I'm in the shower than if I'm just in front of my sink. Alternatively, you could also use a foaming tool to help make foam but I find my hands do the job quite nicely.

Michelle's Rating: ❤ ❤   

Finals Thoughts: Who'd thought the best cleanser would have so many amazing skincare benefits at such an inexpensive price? I know I didn't when I first started my cleanser hunt. However, I'm more than happy that I found it. The Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser has proved its worth as a HG cleanser for me and I will keep using it. Its 150ml tube lasts for a long time and its inexpensive price makes my wallet happy.

Would I repurchase it in the future? Heck yes! I'm on my second tube about to go onto my third. You can say this is a going to be a long term relationship. Do I think this cleanser is worth a try? Yes! If you're all about that low pH cleanser life like me, then give it a shot! It's a really great cleanser and in my opinion, it's worth every penny.
